Merry Christmas

Getting into the Christmas spirit.
Let me count my blessings with you. I had a surprise sale last night. Every sale is a surprise especially right before Christmas. I went to the post office this morning and was in and out in five minutes. I did'nt know you could do priority and delivery confirmation on the self service machine! The forcast calls for snow tonight and into tomorrow. How delightful! I hope all of you are finding peace, joy and love during this holiday season! Merry Christmas! ( the video is my Christmas tree)

Miny Me




Here is Teddy with his little felted miny likeness. We are delighted to have this adorable felted dog in our home. Teddy was very cooperative and did not try to eat or destroy his little friend. Of course he is kept out of reach when not being photographed. Big thanks again to Ben McFuzzy lugs for making and sending our tiny Teddy. Please go check out this Etsy shop and see Teddy hanging our there.

This is my Saturday



I received my new business cards from Overnight Prints. 500 for $9.91. That's free except for the shipping charge. I think they look great.
We went to the 43rd Street Festival of the Arts And as ususal, plenty of great artist. I bought some great note cards from Steve Hedbert. The box of cards are prints of his painting of scenes around Richmond.
Jewelry by Bijou Graphique is wonderful. I've seen the art of Foust many times at many shows and I love it! And how about some amazing beadwork by Ingrid Bernhardt.
After the art show we made stop into Mongrel, a wonderful card and gift store. I picked up some cards and a reusable totebag by Envirosax. If you look at the link you will see which bag I picked. You can see all of the designs they offer also.
And last but not least a visit to Ellwood Thompsons organic market. I snapped a picture on the way in because I love the mural on the outside. Painting by Ed Trask. I'm feeling so gratful to be living here. How was your day?

I Heart My Dog




Since I have'nt posted for a long time I thought I would help spread the word about Skylar's Candy Clips contest giveaway. Two winners will be selected. One for photo and the other for comment entry. Please become a follower of her blog and joint in on the contest.
I'll use this as my comment entry. Before I adopted Teddy from the Henrico Humane Society I has some cosmic gravitational pull to find a dog. I was at the SPCA one day and saw a funny little white dog with huge ears but fairly small in size. The lable on the kennel was "cattle dog". I did not know what that was but that was all I wanted from that point on. I searched the on line pet adoption sites and saw Teddy. I went to the location they set up for the adoptions had to wait for him to arrive. There was as similar dog that was smaller and very cute already there. Once Teddy arrived I spend a long while just hanging around with him. I thought about the other dog but I had come for Teddy and I brought him home that day. Teddy makes us laugh every day and fills my life with many challenges. I'll never tire of his cuteness. Here's two pictures of him. The pumkin hat picture is my favorite and the pin cushion picture shows him into mischief.
PS I found the original photo from the web site adoption. It's the very top photo. What a cutie pie he was!
